...ACCUMULATING SNOW POSSIBLE LATE TONIGHT INTO MIDDAY FRIDAY
ACROSS EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS...

AN OCEAN STORM WILL DEVELOP TONIGHT AND FRIDAY TRACKING ABOUT 400
MILES SOUTHEAST OF NANTUCKET. HOWEVER A TROUGH OF LOW PRESSURE
WILL EXTEND NORTHWEST FROM THE OCEAN LOW BACK INTO EASTERN
MASSACHUSETTS. ITS ALONG THIS TROUGH THAT A NARROW BAND OF
MODERATE TO PERHAPS HEAVY SNOW WILL DEVELOP ACROSS EASTERN
MASSACHUSETTS LATE TONIGHT INTO MIDDAY FRIDAY. THE AREA OF
GREATEST CONCERN IS FROM CAPE ANN SOUTHWARD TO BOSTON...COASTAL
PLYMOUTH COUNTY AND CAPE COD. ACROSS THE OUTER CAPE TEMPERATURES MAY
BE WARM ENOUGH FOR A MIX OF RAIN AND SNOW AND POSSIBLY
ACCUMULATIONS CONFINED TO NON PAVED SURFACES.

EARLY INDICATIONS SUGGEST A NARROW SWATH OF 2 TO 4 INCHES OF
SNOWFALL IS POSSIBLE OVER THIS AREA. HOWEVER THERE IS SOME
UNCERTAINTY ON THE EXACT LOCATION AND DURATION OF THIS SNOW BAND.
THEREFORE A SLIGHT SHIFT AS LITTLE AS 25 MILES COULD RESULT IN
MOST OF THE SNOW REMAINING OFFSHORE...WITH LITTLE IF ANY IMPACT
ACROSS EASTERN MASSACHUSETTS. THEREFORE STAY TUNED TO LATER
FORECASTS AND DISCUSSIONS ON THIS POTENTIAL SNOW EVENT.
